Everyone thinks this Mortal Kombat 11 character is secretly gay

Kano, a character in Mortal Kombat 11

Justin didn’t realize that Mortal Kombat 11 was out until he logged-onto Twitter today (25 April).

He was holding back on buying the game considering he couldn’t buy it at release, but scrolling through his timeline, he noticed something.

‘Now that every gay man on Twitter is swooning over Kano, I am now informed it’s out,’ he tweeted.

Released in North America and Europe earlier this week, Mortal Kombat is the latest instalment of the long-running fighting video game franchise.

And Kano, one of the characters, has whipped LGBTI twitter into a frenzy as many compared him to certain, more huskier queer male stereotypes.

‘He’s literal gay fetish bait’

Kano is one of the original characters from the franchise. Being part of the roster since 1992.

Created by John Tobias and Richard Divizio, his most recognizable feature is a cybernetic metal faceplate that houses an infrared eye laser. His demeanour is all about being selfish, facetious, and arrogant. He’s also around 89% bicep alone.

But introduced swigging green bottled beer, spitting into the camera, and urinating on the stage, it seems developers have dialled-up Kanos’ domineering look.

Kano was made for the gays,’ one user declared, ‘he literally is a walking Leather Bar and he is going to be so many young gay boys crushes.’

‘This character is not heterosexual. He is a dick pig. You’d find him in the hole at jackhammer [an LGBTI night-club in Chicago] any night,’ another user colorfully considered.

Furthermore, a user added: ‘Oh my god, who designed Kano, he’s literal gay fetish bait.’

But with signature moves including ‘fist of power,’ ‘chokeshold,’ and ‘power slam,’ these users might be onto something.

Moreover, French actor JB Blanc is the voice of Kanos in the game. The eleventh edition to the series was developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
